No trade-deadline deals for Cowboys

IRVING, Texas -- The NFL trade deadline has passed without the Cowboys making a deal, which is not surprising.

Owner and general manager Jerry Jones said on his KRLD-FM radio show earlier in the day that a trade involving running back Tashard Choice was unlikely because of the high ankle sprain suffered by Felix Jones on Sunday.

Tight end Martellus Bennett was another name that was linked to the trade market but nothing materialized.

Bennett and Choice will be unrestricted free agents after this season and are likely to play elsewhere in 2012.

The Cowboys have not made a deadline trade deal since acquiring Roy Williams and a seventh rounder from Detroit in 2008 for first-, third- and sixth-round picks.
